Happy Halloween! Any Halloween lovers out there? I kind of have a love-hate relationship with it. I love the decorations, the treats, but hate the scary movies. In fact, my boyfriend and I just were in Orlando for a night and there was a horror movie convention happening in the hotel we were staying at. […]

Vegan-Caramel-Sauce-with-Datees1

← Read more

I was at Publix the other day, casually strolling by a Halloween candy display, and decided to check out what actually was in a jar of caramel sauce. I was kinda shocked at what I found. High fructose corn syrup, more corn syrup, cream solids, and a bunch of chemical additives that sound pretty gnarly. […]

Healthy-Vegan-Snickers-3

Yep. You read that post title correctly. Today we are making Healthy Vegan Snickers Bars!!! Because we should all be able to enjoy candy every now and then and do so without feeling crappy from what’s inside of the candy bars. So let’s talk Snickers for a second. Snickers, which usually can be found right […]

Plant Based Naturally-Sweetened Dark Chocolate

Is there anything better than a really good piece of dark chocolate? How about a plant-based, naturally-sweetened, dark chocolate?! You can find a LOT of different types of chocolate out there- from dark to milk to healthy to not so healthy. And while lots of these chocolates taste really good- the after effects of eating […]

Cacao Peanut Butter Smoothie

Did you used to mess with a chocolate milkshake as a kid? I definitely, DEFINITELY did. My dad was kind of an expert chocolate milkshake maker. He had this whole process involving chocolate ice cream, Hershey’s syrup, Nesquik, an ice cold stainless steel cup, and a special spoon (which he named “MY SPOON). His milkshakes […]

gluten-free vegan christmas cookies

  Merry Christmas! Since the holidays are here, I’ve been baking a lot. It’s the one time of year (this and Thanksgiving) when I indulge in sugar- usually in the form of coconut sugar. I usually don’t consume it, which started a few years ago and has been a decision I’m very happy with. I […]

vegan chocolate peppermint balls

Read more 

I’m not going to get it twisted here and claim that holiday sweets aren’t delicious. Because they are. But they’re also a little heavy and a few days of holiday parties/dinners/work things can leave you feeling less than stellar. This grab and go snack-breakfast-dessert will pretty much make you feel the opposite of that. Light, healthy, […]

VEGAN unicorn frappucino

← Read more

  Last week, everyone went bonkers over the Unicorn Frappuccino at Starbucks. Most likely created with Instagram posts in mind (props to Starbuck’s marketing team), the drink is cute, fun, and a seemingly-awesome welcome drink for May. Except that the second ingredient in the drink’s blue syrup is sugar, it’s made with an f*ton of dairy products (a […]

gluten free vegan cadbury cream eggs

  If you’re vegan and/or gluten-free, you might sometimes feel like family and friend get-togethers can be lacking  in the food department, especially if your family and friends aren’t familiar with eating a plant-based diet. It might seem frustrating, but it can actually be a kickass opportunity for you to show your loved ones how insanely good vegan food can […]

VEGAN PEPPERMINT BARK

← Read more

  Happy holidays!! Are you looking for any last minute thoughtful gifts for loved ones? A sweet treat is always an awesome option, whether that means yummy cranberry loaf, tasty cookies, or this veganized peppermint bark. This bark is my personal fav because it packs up so well, looks super cute, and is easy to make. On a personal note, […]

vegan pumpkin roll

Read more 

The holidays have officially arrived and with that usually comes PUMPKIN! Do you have any favorite holiday pumpkin food or drinks? My mom made pumpkin roll every holiday season growing up, which inspired today’s recipe. It’s a gluten-free, vegan (BOMB) version of the classic holiday dessert. It’s free of any processed sugar, nutrient-lacking white flour, or unhealthy dairy add-ins […]

  Did you ever notice that it can be tough to eat healthy when traveling? I think the key to success with this is packing healthy portable vegan snacks. Instead of relying on finding healthy options at restaurants or convenience stores, you’re guaranteed healthy eats when you pack them yourself. These simple three ingredient peanut butter balls are an […]

In honor of Mardi Gras (and Fat Tuesday), I’m bringing you a veganized version of one of my favorite childhood treats: the powdered sugar-covered Vanilla Kreme Donuts (seen here). I used to love these powdered sugar-drenched donuts loaded with sickeningly sweet vanilla cream. Because I now eat gluten-free vegan, I didn’t see eating one of these guys again […]

Vegan Chocolate oatmeal cream pie cookies

← Read more

Do you remember Oatmeal Creme Pies? A soft oatmeal cookie filled with sugary sweet marshmallow gooeyness….. mmmm. Given that the first ingredient in these childhood favorites is corn syrup (along with partially hydrogenated oils, Red 40, and numerous other nasty artificial ingredients), I set out to make a healthy gluten-free vegan version. I replaced the […]

Vegan-Caramel-Apples (1)

It’s almost Halloween which means it’s almost time for costumes, candy, and scary movies. I’ll pass on the scary movies but count me in for the costumes and (plant-based, date-sweetened) candy! I’ve always had a sweet tooth, but I’ve changed my diet substantially to eat gluten-free vegan. I came up with these Vegan Caramel Apples as a […]

vegan cherry coconut ice cream 2

 I’ve tried my hand at vegan ice cream before (check out this vegan Cherry Garcia), but recently I’ve been blending up all kinds of different ice cream-esque creations (including my favorite adult beverage as of late involving watermelon and tequila). Today, we’re making Vegan Cherry Coconut Ice Cream with fresh coconut, cherries, and ice. Let’s […]

 We talked about a childhood frosty favorite last Wednesday, the Fugsicle, and we made it vegan. Today, let’s make some Gluten-Free Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches. Because what’s better than ice cream on a dreary Tuesday? This recipe is two parts – Fudgy Flourless Chocolate Cookies and creamy Coconut Whipped Cream. Both are pretty phenomenal on their own, but I suggest combining […]

 A friend of mine recently asked me about the chocolate avocado pudding concept. The idea that blending avocados, cocoa powder (or cacao), and a little bit of sweetener gives you tasty non-dairy chocolate pudding is fantastic. But we can take this one step further – freeze the mixture and we get healthy vegan fudgsicles! I was […]

  I recently picked up a popsicle mold and knew I wanted to make fresh, healthy, and light fruit pops. I also knew I wanted to make some patriotic treats for the weekend. These healthy, light Patriotic Berry Popsicles are easy to prepare in under twenty minutes. Once you mix up the liquid, you pour into a popsicle […]
